    I have the same problem with my Husqvarna Viking 940. When I plug it in I get the light and computer but when I push the foot pedal the machine won't go. It makes a slight sound at the beginning.

Your foot pedal plug is loose or possibly unplugged. You could also have a piece of fabric or thread that may be caught under the plate or around the bobbin. Remove all lint and oil the machine making sure the foot pedal plug is tightly in the machine.

Viking 980 foot pedal not making contact with machine although machine has power.

It could be lint jammed into the jack the cord plugs into. Make sure the jack and plug are both clean and free of lint. It also could be a damaged cord. If a friend has a working Viking pedal try borrowing theirs to see if it works on your machine. If not, your machine might need service.

No foot pedal for machine

If you have a start/stop button, yes you can use that instead of a foot pedal. Most viking designer models use a common foot pedal, so you might be able to find a used one.
